Westinghouse Lighting issued a nationwide recall of approximately 5,000 of its ceiling-mounted glass shade holders due to a risk of electric shock, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) stated on March 12.
The pull chain switch of the recalled products has defective wiring, posing an electrical risk. The affected products have the model number 70242 and product date code 2014 APR located at the base. The defective lamp shade holders were sold at different Home Depot outlets nationwide from August 2014 to January 2015.
Consumers are asked to stop using the defective product and contact the company for a free replacement kit.
